Ganajagaran Mancha organised a torch procession on Monday evening protesting a bomb blast by anonymous miscreants in front of the Shahbagh Police station.
The bomb blasted immediately after a procession of Ganajagaran Mancha protesting the Jaamat called country wide dawn-to-dusk hartal passed the area at around 12:45pm.
According to sources, at least 500 people attended the torch procession that started from Projonmo Chattar at around 7:30pm and ended at the same point after marching in front of TSC of Dhaka University and the High Court.
Imran H Sarkar, Convener of the Ganajagaran Mancha, led the procession.
Khan Asaduzzaman Masum, an organiser and supporter of Ganajagaran Mancha alleged that Jaamat-Shibir activists were involved in the bomb blast at Shahbagh. He also said the anti-hartal procession was brought out based on a previously taken decision to protest any kind of strike called by Jamaat.
